- "Bonum Commune Communitatis"
Sandford is a fictional rural village "in the middle of nowhere" in Gloucestershire as depicted in the movie Hot Fuzz. It once boasted the lowest crime rate in England, since there had been no recorded murder there for twenty years.
Arrival of Nicholas
When Sergeant Nicholas Angel was sent to Sandford, he made a theory that the numerous accidents which occur in Sandford are all connected somehow, and eventually uncovered the plot of the Neighbourhood Watch Alliance. This led to the arrest of many prominent Sandford citizens, including the ringmaster of the criminal activity: Frank Butterman.
Also located here is Somerfield.
Sandford is actually a fictitious place used by police services for recruits in exams.
